Alma Sessions (Brazilian pressing)

CD (Item 483010) Trama (Brazil), 2005 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



Tremendous work from Bruno E – his greatest album so far, and an instant global soul classic! Bruno's working in really boundary-less territory here – mixing English and Portuguese vocals in a set of tunes that bubble with gentle soul and sparkle with a rich 21st Century approach. The overall groove is gentle, but always present – and Bruno's work on Fender Rhodes alone would be enough to make us love the album, but it's made even better by guest vocals from Xantone Blaq, Tom Ze, Patricia Marx, and Sarah Anne Webb. Titles include "Soul Storm", "Mister Modernismo", "Is Love", "Feel", "A Tempestade", "The Birth Of A Star", "Sons", and "Alma".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Daniel Carlomagno (2005)
Trama (Brazil), 2005. Used
The second album from Daniel Carlomango – and an amazing little set that's one of our favorite recent albums from Brazil! Daniel's got a style that's a bit like that of some of his Trama labelmates – but there's also a depth and seriousness here that's instantly apparent in the ... CD


Trama (Brazil), 2006. Used
A delightful collision of music old and new – as acoustic Brazilian choro comes into play with more booty-styled beats – in a blend that's surprisingly great on the best numbers in the set! The style is one that might sound a bit hokey on paper, but it comes off well – never too ... CD

Bim Bom – The Complete Joao Gilberto Songbook
Motema, 2009. Used
A lovely little tribute to the genius of Joao Gilberto – and quite possibly the best album we've ever heard from vocalist Ithamara Koorax! The set's quite spare – just Ithamara's vocals and a bit of guitar to back her up – and the stripped-down setting hardly gives Koorax any ... CD

Incredible music from Seu Jorge – and that's saying a lot, given how much we've loved all of his previous records! This time around, Jorge really knocks it out of the park – by stepping away from some of his tighter styles, and going for a looser, more organic approach that's totally ... CD
